Teaser Tuesday: The Bluebonnet Betrayal by Marty Wingate

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Books and a Beat. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:
  • Grab your current read
  • Open to a random page
  • Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
  • BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
Share the title and author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

Without realizing it, Pru had clamped her hadn onto Ivory's arm and was squeezing. Ivory patter the hand before pulling it off and patting it again.
This week my teaser comes from The Bluebonnet Betrayal by Marty Wingate. This is the latest in her Potting Shed Mystery series. Here is the description from Amazon:
Pru’s life in England is coming full circle. A Texas transplant, she’s married to the love of her life, thriving in the plum gardening position she shares with her long-lost brother, and prepping a Chelsea Flower Show exhibit featuring the beloved bluebonnets of the Texas hill country. Technically, Twyla Woodford, the president of a gardening club in the Lone Star State, is in charge of the London event, but Pru seems to be the one getting her hands dirty. When they finally do meet, Pru senses a kindred spirit—until Twyla turns up dead.

Although Twyla’s body was half buried under a wall in their display, Pru remains determined to mount a spectacular show. Twyla would have insisted. So Pru recruits her husband, former Detective Chief Inspector Christopher Pearse, to go undercover and do a bit of unofficial digging into Twyla’s final hours. If Pru has anything to say about it, this killer is going to learn the hard way not to mess with Texas.


  1. This looks like a fun, cozy mystery. I think I'll add this one to my shelf. I like transplant from England to Texas, and the whole garden club plot line.

  2. Recently read the first in this series, and have the next two in the digital Mount TBR. Mine

  3. Interesting! Thanks for letting me know about this TT on my blog!

  4. Oh fun! I enjoy cozy mysteries though mine tend to be paranormal related! LOL.

    Here's my Tuesday Post

    Have a GREAT day!

    Old Follower :)

  5. It looks like such a sweet cover and then I notice the boot. I got a feeling that's a dead body. LOL I sure do love the creative covers and fun titles for cozies!

  6. Sounds like a fun mystery! I like cozies, so I'll be on the lookout for this. Thanks for sharing!

  7. I hope to read one of my many cozies soon. I've long been in the mood for one. Unfortunately, I have other reading commitments that I have to put first. (Although it isn't all that unfortunate because the books I have been reading are good . . .).

    I read your review of this one, and am glad to see you liked it! It does sound fun.
